Microsoft highlighted the following three aspects in SP3 which makes it great to use on a lap.
Surface Pro 3 features a ‘continuous’ kickstand that uses friction to easily adjust to any angle up to 150 degrees. This obviously allows for a lot of viewing angles on tables and desks of different heights, but it also allows the kickstand to accommodate a lot of different lap positions.

The new Surface Pro Type Cover still offers the great typing experience of past Type Covers as well as backlighting and a larger trackpad with reduced friction. It still does a great job of protecting your screen. It also features magnetic stability – the ability to magnetically lock to the lower bezel of Surface Pro 3 across the full width of the device. This creates a remarkable amount of stability in a lot of positions – whether you’re working on a desk or on your lap.

Surface Pro 3 is thin and light, and the balance of the device is important as you use it on your lap. Surface Pro 3 packs an amazing amount of computing power into a tablet that weighs only 1.76 pounds and is 0.36 inches thin. It is also balanced to feel great in your hands and to work brilliantly as a laptop replacement.
